RAMAPO, N.Y. — Authorities say a 16-year-old threatened a younger student with a loaded gun during an argument on a suburban New York school bus.

The incident occurred last Friday after classes at Ramapo High School in Rockland County, according to the Journal News.

The teen was arrested Friday evening. Police say the gun was recovered in a car as he was riding around with a 23-year-old.

Investigators are tracking the origins of the weapon.

The two students were in a “confined area” of the bus when the incident occurred, Detective Lt. Mark Emma said.
